Last night whilst writing my blog I ran out of data on my phone and was unable to complete it! So here is our last 2 days at caister-on-sea.
We woke up nice and early as we usually do and my stomach was feeling much healthier. We scoffed our breakfast, got ready and headed on down to pettitts farm. I have so many memories of this place when I was a child and it was great to go back with my Small Human and Man Child to make new ones!
We came across some crane machines and Hazel was delighted to see her favourite characters from Paw Patrol were inside. I was telling Man Child about how these things are rigged and you can only win one every certain amount of goes. I popped my pound in and with all my might (and the help of a small joy stick) I let the crane lower itself onto one of the toys and BAM! I won!
She seemed delighted with her new pet toy that she sat down and tried to force feed the poor thing gravel. Well I guess the don’t call him Rubble for nothing!
We fed the goats, grabbed some lunch, watched the worlds most awful clown show and saw the rest of the animals. With a very tired and very grumpy Small Human in Toe we called it a day and headed back to the house on wheels.
We couldn’t decide whether to go to the evening entertainment or not and we settled for a walk on the beach.
We had our wellies on and walked down to the sea thinking it would be a nice idea to let the water wash over our feet. That was until Small Human made a B line for the waves and ended up soaked. We spent 10 minutes running in and out of the sea until we were all completely drenched down to our undies.
Legs and feet frozen we dashed back as fast as we could and warmed ourselves up in the shower. A bit of play time later, we sent Small Human off to bed and watched some crap TV with cheesy nachos before going to bed ourselves!
Can you believe it’s been freezing cold,cloudy and rainy all week and then on the day of our departure bright sunshine? Typical!
Check out was at 10 so we packed the car and dropped our keys off at reception before taking our last trip down to Great Yarmouth Beach. Just before this we heated up a bottle for Small Human and the microwave started smoking! There was a large burn mark on the inside. Thank goodness it wasn’t anything serious and it had happened before the next family had arrived because you just don’t know what would have happened if it had been on any longer!
We visited the Merivale model village which again I have many memories of when I was younger.
It was great going back again as an adult and seeing all the ‘rude models’ we don’t notice as children. I saw a man flashing a lady in his home, a woman streaking on a football pitch and a rugby players bare bottom!
We walked across the board walk and ended the day with a subway!
When we got home we unpacked the car and waited for the handy man to come and work out why we have a large stain on our kitchen ceiling. Turns out the sealant to the bath had come away and water was leaking through! It must not have been put in correctly as the interior of our home is just over 6 months old! The bath is now sealed (hopefully correctly this time) and the stain has been removed. We do now however have a large white paint patch and will have to wait a week for them to come back and paint it back to its original colour!
It’s been a brilliant week and I’m straight back to work tomorrow so it’s time to relax and get an early night
Thanks for reading 😘
